As part of The Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app designed by Hyundai and INNOCEAN USA (launched during San Diego Comic-Con), fans have designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra. This summer, Kuo's Santa Fe design was picked as the winner out of more than 82,500 fan submissions. His winning vehicle was constructed by GAS and the real-life machine was unveiled on the New York Comic-Con show floor on October 10, 2013 at the Future US booth.
Kuo, who hails from Arizona, created an urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine featuring: knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer. His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead. Having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved, said Kuo. This Hyundai will be a true zombie obliterator.
"We love Anson Kuo's take on this Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine - it's creative... and deadly," said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. "With help from the popularity of The Walking Dead franchise, Hyundai continues to expand the conversation around Hyundai vehicles with young and passionate audiences."
